The aircraft carrying the whole Pakistani delegation, including Prime Minister Imran Khan, had to return to New York and make an emergency landing due to a technical malfunction, Geo TV reported on Saturday.
According to the report, a fault was discovered, when the plane was near the city of Toronto, Canada and the aircraft was forced to fly 700 kilometres (around 430 miles) back to New York. The officials will spend the night in the city and will return to their country when the plane is repaired.
